HEALTH SCIENCE CAMPUS TECH PARK SOLAR RIBBON CUTTING 

The event is 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25 at the HSC Tech Park Solar Field, located off of Arlington Avenue along Main Technology Drive near the Facilities Support Building.

 A new 2.3-acre, 332-kilowatt solar array on Health Science Campus is expected to save The University of Toledo nearly $30,000 a year while increasing the amount of renewable energy powering the University.

 A senior design team made up of UToledo students studying mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineering worked with UToledo Facilities and Construction to identify the site and prepared construction engineering drawings with assistance from JDRM Engineering. The UToledo Student Green Fund approved spending $350,000 to cover the costs to install the array. The construction contract was awarded to Solscient Energy LLC after a public bidding of the project.

THANK YOU STUDENTS FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE FOR THE NEXT 25+ YEARS OF STUDENTS - TRULY A SUSTAINABLE INITIATIVE
